Gameday Grilling

By Mickey Wakenigg

At The Stone Store, not only do we seriously dabble with soil, mulch, and stone, and total yard transformations, we also carry an amazing line of quality grills such as TEC Gas Grills and Twin Eagles premium grills. Take your backyard football party or tailgate to the next level!

TEC Grills are beyond their time for what they do and what they can offer. TEC developed and introduced the world’s first infrared gas grill in 1980. More than 30 years later, TEC’s first customers are still cooking on their very first grills because we build grills that are made to last a lifetime, and support every grill that we have ever made with replacement parts. Made in America and built using the finest grade of materials, including 304 stainless steel.

Everything in nature, including food, is surrounded by a moisture boundary – a layer of air and water molecules. The hot air generated by other grills can’t penetrate this boundary without disturbing it, so food is exposed to the drying elements of hot air as it cooks. TEC grills cook with 100 percent infrared energy that doesn’t disturb the moisture boundary, so food retains up to 35 percent more of its own natural juices and remains tender and juicy. TEC grills heat up from 0-850° F in 10 minutes. How’s that for cutting your grilling time in half?

It smokes. It sears. It barbecues low and slow. No hot air to dry out food. Just moist, tender, juicy, charbroiled flavor. No flare-ups. No charring. No hot or cold spots. It heats up quickly and is easy to clean. We designed our stainless steel burners to distribute heat evenly across the cooking grates. Radiant glass panels below the cooking grates incinerate food drippings, creating a rich, smoky vapor that flavors the food. Now you can have it all – the convenience of gas and the charbroiled flavor of charcoal or wood, but without the ashy residue.

But how about all of that to go, like to a fall football tailgate party? Look no further, as the G Sport FR is the answer. This grill does everything. Both versatile and affordable, the G Sport FR is the only full-sized grill certified for use on combustible surfaces, including wood. It’s designed to be used on a table or countertop or as a freestanding grill on a pedestal and is also easy to transport. Side shelf and warming rack are optional.

Of course, if traditional fire grills are more your style, Twin Eagles Grills has plenty to offer. Twin Eagles design is truly unique, with exclusive geometric shapes, contoured angles, seamless welds and hi-polished accents. Every grill is an intriguing blend of modern design and classic elegance, making them a perfect match for both traditional and contemporary architecture. Mixing direct heat from specifically placed ports and channels with radiant heat from ceramic briquettes allows your grill to reach higher temperatures and distribute heat evenly to the grates. Hexagonal grates retain and conduct more heat into your food and provide more food-to-surface contact to brand your food with thick restaurant style sear marks.

Drafting vents draw cool air from the bottom of the firebox, keeping the heat above the burners where it is needed, while keeping the air/gas mixture constant for a more efficient flame. Zone dividers enable you to grill effectively with one burner only or regulate each area at a different temperature when cooking different food items.

Stylish outdoor kitchens are the latest trend in entertaining. Choosing the right grill and accessories for your perfect backyard entertainment center is important. It’s your personal touch to your outdoor kitchen, a reflection of your lifestyle. At The Stone Store, you’ll find everything you need to turn your outdoor kitchen into a work of art.
